It is my habit to fear the making of an acquaintance with new people, and probably if no one else ever made first overtures I would never meet anyone. So it was with the visit of the Soyer's - but I need have had no apprehension. I liked them both - Soyer was all artist, and interested so completely in picture. He said his visit here was the happiest day of his stay in Buffalo, which I can well understand, for there is not an artist in Buffalo who is completely an artist - The most are dilettantic, - more interested in social life, or the politics of "art circles".
